    I have skype installed on my ipad2. with the ipad turned off (top button pressed lightly) an incoming skype call rings. should I have expected that?

    Yes.

    Lightly pressing the top button is only sending your device to sleep. To standby. It's still on and apps still operate in the background.

    Don't feel so bad about it. I don't think it's that obvious at all - after all, your PC doesn't receive when it's asleep. But it is strangely comforting at night to hear the email arriving sound beep if you have your iPad on the table next to your bed.

    i agree totally, but because my ipad volume is always on full blast i must keep device in my home office room overnight. too loud otherwise.

    but yes, i can just make the sound out at night when i get mail, and i get strangely awfully excited and cant wait for the morning to read it, even though i know it's probably junk mail again.

    Something else I wonder about Skype: A Skype call will ring on my phone, iPad 1 or 2, or laptop, but not always the same one, and sometimes on two devices about the same time. But it's not consistent, though I just put all the devices to sleep and don't log off Skype.

    i think it's just the quirkiness of the software. i have skype always running on my 2 desktop pc's, my ipad and my Touch.

    all ring at the same time when a call come in, but when i answer with whatever device, not all the other skypes acknowledge this and stop ringing. different combinations happen for whatever skype i answer first.

    Yes, I have the same experience with the other device not acknowledging even if I pick up on one of the others.
